French label Because Music brings us a compilation of vintage electronic productions from its home country, exploring the eclectic narrative of "cosmic and electronic avant garde" sounds from across the '70s. Called 'Cosmic Machine: A Voyage Across French Cosmic & Electronic Avantgarde (1970-1980)', the release features an extensive trip into a time when "the future wasn't yet a retro notion." Olivier Carrié has handpicked the 20 spacious synth-disco jams and ambient ruminations featured throughout Cosmic Machine - including Jean Michel Jarre, Serge Gainsbourg's "Le Physique Et Le Figure," Thomas Bangalter's father Daniel Vangarde (AKA DVWB), disco icon Marc Cerrone, and "Le Bracelet" by Alan Goraguer, whose Fantastic Planet soundtrack was sampled frequently for Madlib's Quasimoto records. Exploring the more emotive and passionate side of French electronic music history, the forthcoming compilation is something of a love letter to innovative and experimental composers who championed analog synthesizers and challenged the all-consuming American disco scene at its peak.
